Lea and Nicole meet Wakanda's Queen Mother
While in New York for the Broadway run of the Olivier Award-winning play “Once On This Island,” acclaimed performer Lea Salonga has met a number of famous celebrities from the west, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, and Neil Patrick Harris.
She most recently met American actress Angela Bassett, who’s known for playing Tina Turner in the 1993 biopic “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” But you’ll probably recognize her as Wakanda’s Queen Mother Ramonda from Marvel’s “Black Panther.”
Lea’s daughter Nicole was with her when Angela watched the show and she couldn’t help but bow before the queen of Wakanda with her arms crossed over her chest. Angela repaid Nicole’s show of respect with a hearty hug and a kiss to the forehead.
Watch it all here:
“So THIS happened tonight after the show!!! My daughter knelt to Wakanda’s Queen Mother!!! Thank you for your kindness, Angela Bassett (@im.angelabassett)!!! We were so honored by your presence!!! #WakandaForever” Lea wrote in her caption.
